    Yup, spybot is just a great program. Teatimer function saved me a couple of times, too.

    I still can't shake this one pesky adware program called virtumonde.

    It's putting up a good fight.

    can you go in the CP, add/remove programs and delete that one?

    I'd recommend trying out Ad-Aware, Spybot( which you already seem to have ), CCleaner and an app I found called 'Quickkill' you can find here: An App A Day - Downloads: Day 16 - QuickKill

    Quickkill will terminate any process running that you don't have listed in the .jedi file that accompanies the .exe( you can edit the .jedi file in notepad )

    With CCleaner, go to I think it's tools and startup and delete anything suspicious and run it to clear out temp files.

    Some of the trojans can't get really deleted from the system without a specifically built fix program. Some of these fix only one trojan and some can fix 10-20 different trojans. The process usually consists of many steps, different instructions, registry fixing phases, renaming files, reboots, deleting renamed files etc.

    To make it shorter - do what Birdman suggests.

    Actually, after you CLEAN it I suggest you back your data off it and reload it.
















    Then you can limp along until you can save up for a REALLY COOL Mac!

    google "mac virus" and "mac spyware"


    Stay off "those" sites, RR and your troubles will be gone!
    And remember, anything on the internet that is "free" is probably bad.
